Yushu - If you can get past the 20 hour bus ride along some of the worst roads in China, it's worth the trip. Sleeper buses are not much better (extremely dirt linens and cold) than a regular bus seat due to the roads. The town itself is not much to see, other than the obvious cement architecture. What makes the town unique is that it is well over 95% Tibetan, and the Han and Hui minority Chinese are afraid of the Tibetans. The local government supports the Tibetans in this small town which is unique to see. The Gyana Mani Temple is impressive with its countless prayer-stones. A small monk school contains many friendly trainees at the Princess Wencheng Temple outside of town. There is a friendly Tibetan school in the fields past this gorge complex also and its one of two teachers will be happy to have a foreign visiter. The food is not the best, but the yak yogurt is highly recommended.
